NCURA Fitness Track

Activities Fitness Track

Changing time zones, networking, educational sessions, dinner groups...let’s face it—travel to the Annual Meeting could leave you with little opportunity for fitness. And while you may be tempted to “forget” your gym clothes altogether, consider this: staying active can give you the energy and stamina you need to help you through those full days in Washington, DC! We have fitness activities planned for each day of the conference!

In fact, recent studies suggest that business travelers who exercise while they travel can improve reaction and alertness by up to 61%. Moreover, exercise boosts immunity defenses, triggers the release of brain endorphins, and even helps you sleep better. Check out our fitness options for you!

Monday Morning Boot Camp

Monday, August 5th | 6:15am-6:45am | Location: TBD

Ditch your apps and screen and join us for a mixed interval, total body conditioning workout -- IRL! This will be a fast-moving workout with short intervals of high intensity interval training (HIIT), mixed cardio and bodyweight strength, a core challenge and full body stretch. All exercises can be done at your own pace so you can get the most out of your workout. All fitness levels are welcome; both high and low impact modifications will be available.

Your Instructor: Barbara Inderwiesche, Kuali Research

Barbara is a former Group X Instructor with over 10 years’ experience teaching TurboKick, 24LIFT and Strength Endurance Training (SET), at 24 Hour Fitness. Four kids and a global pandemic later, Barbara still has a passion for teaching and for fitness, and like most of us, has resigned to working out through an app in the garage. Her favorite classes include weightlifting, HIIT, kickboxing and yoga.
